Good kid

My phone yelps-- i see that my daughter is calling from school. Right away I am worried-- is it a seizure? Forgotten homework? Something terrible? She never calls from school. If she gets caught with her phone out they will take it from her.

"Mom," says she, "I put that big bottle of soda in the freezer last night to make it cold, but I fell asleep. Can you take it out before it explodes."

Soda did not explode... Soda was frozen solid though.

*mutters* Oh they can explode, it's such a mess in the freezer, defrosting and all... Good thinking that kid.

At work they have these giant glass-fronted refrigerator cases of free beverages. Apparently one of them wasn't keeping the soda cold enough for someone, and they messed with the temperature setting.

I come in one morning, and there are dozens of exploded cans of soda blasted around the inside of the case, fountains of soda erupting from split cans and frozen into place, etc. It was a landscape of all the various things soda can do when it gets too cold. I wish I'd thought to take a picture.

The cleaning staff was not amused and there are now very strongly worded warning signs on all the fridges.

Good thinking on her part. And a relief that it was something so harmless.

My dad once put a glass bottle of sparkling juice in the freezer. It cracked in a very nice spiral, with bits of frozen soda bulging out between the cracks. Lovely, aside from all the broken glass. :)
